Creative Europe in Slovenia

Slovene cultural producers have been consistently successful in the European Union's programmes for the cultural and creative sectors. Today, these programmes are united under the name Creative Europe. Through an impressive performance of their application-genius, in 2019, 5 project leaders managed to claim no less than 1 million euros, while 23 Slovene producers are engaged as partners in the granted Cooperation Projects of the Culture subprogramme. The producers located in Ljubljana, Maribor, Nova Gorica, Novo mesto and Murska Sobota collaborate mostly with partners from Italy (15), Germany (12), Belgium (11), UK (11), and Poland (10).

Consult the infographic which shows the distribution of projects by art field and by the organisation's role in the project. The interactive chart is updated by Motovila Institute which runs the Creative Europe Desk Slovenia.

Festivals in Slovenia

All public events have been suspended until further notice because an epidemic was declared in Slovenia on 12 March 2020.

Since 2012, the annual festivalscapes are provided as an infographic, conceived by the team at the Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory.

The interactive calendars include the festivals from the database arranged by weeks and by field. You can get various charts, e.g., music festivals only, by clicking on the corresponding artistic field.

Festival organisers, you are invited to send in the missing festival dates for our 2020 festival infographic, or the dates of your editions in 2021 or 2022.

You can complement the infographic with the timeline of festivals, which reveals the dynamics of establishing new festivals in Slovenia (since 1946).
